I don't want to give anything else but he keeps trying to figure out what way to go and more adventure and attempts are made for his life and anyone he confides in life.
Their is a reporter looking into Hawkins college life in England who gets a lead for a story.

It sounds like a great book. Politicians and drug dealers are great together... but just in books.
